SSMS Weekly Update

JANUARY 7, 2021

Dear SSMS Families,

Thank you for another outstanding week at SSMS! During the first semester of the school year our cumulative attendance rate was 98.43%. Our goal for this year is to have an annual attendance rate of 97%, so we are well on our way. Next week the SSMS Campus Advisory Council will have a special public meeting and I'll be reviewing our TEA Accountability Data from 2020-2021. All community members are welcome to join this special meeting on Wednesday January 12th at 5:00 p.m. in the SSMS Cafeteria. Stay warm and safe and have a great weekend!

SSMS Showcase for Next Year's 6th Grade

On Thursday January 20, 2022 SSMS will be hosting a Showcase at 6:00 p.m. for current 5th grade students from Rooster Springs, Cypress Springs, and Sycamore Springs Elementary Schools. This is our official kick-off of the scheduling season as we begin to help students select their elective choices and courses for next year. During the month of February our 8th grade students will work with DSHS and our current 6th and 7th grade students will collaborate with Ms. Caroselli to make their course choices for next year. More information will be sent out in the future regarding course choices for next year.
